Did I use a leash on my kids?

This question came up in conversation the other day. The short answer?

Yes. Yes I did.

The longer answer – absolutely. Because my kids were runners. Especially Sophie who, I later found out from Erin, inspired a drinking game during our cul-de-sac parties called “Where’s Sophie?”

As in – oh look, Kristin and Steve are looking for Sophie again. Drink!

Now what I don’t understand is why she isn’t wearing shoes in this picture, because I’m sure we were in Boston at the AARP conference with my mom.
